20180811_velophonic-orchestra-headerThe spontaneous bicycle where YOU are the orchestra!

On Saturday 11 August 2018 from 10:15 – 11:30am, right in the beating heart of Festival 2018 in George Square, the Velophonic Orchestra will explore the possibilities of using bicycles as instruments: playing on bells, spokes, frames, saddles – you name it. The Velophonic Orchestra is an orchestra that anyone can join!

No previous bicycle-playing experience necessary – just follow the conductors and experience being part of the band as they create a piece of music to celebrate each of the four cycling disciplines of the Glasgow 2018 Championships. There’ll even be a part for non-cyclists!

You can download the flyer here.

For more information including details of free outreach workshops around the city, check out the website or Facebook and Twitter pages.

 

 

Cycling_manifestoA ban on pavement parking, high quality cycling infrastructure, a 20mph limit on local streets and an overhaul of the Highway Code were amongst the measures recommended in a new manifesto released on 28 June from an alliance of the UK’s major organisations dedicated to walking and cycling.

The alliance of the Bicycle Association, Cycling UK, the Ramblers, British Cycling, Living Streets and Sustrans, has a combined membership of more than 330,000 people and span every form of walking and cycling, from the school run to Olympic success.

Launching their ‘Moving the Nation’ manifesto at a major conference on cycling in Manchester, they unveiled a new vision of a future where everybody in the UK can live, work and play in places that are ‘healthy, vibrant and that make walking and cycling the natural choice for short journeys’.

Lady_CyclingWomen in UK cities have a positive perception of cycling, yet 73% never ride a bike.

Almost three quarters (73%) of women living in seven major UK cities never ride a bike for local journeys.

Despite this, over two-thirds (68%) say their city would be a better place to live and work if more people cycled, new data reveals.

Women: reducing the gender gap‘, published by Sustrans, details women’s travel habits, views and attitudes towards cycling.

The report, which is part of the Bike Life project, is based on an ICM independent survey of over 7,700 residents living in Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Greater Manchester.
